Other call blockers are also available at a range of price points inc. CPR Call Blocker and some types of cordless phones have the feature built in. Phones which only block one single number at a time are not, however, much use for automatic robo-dialler nuisance calls.
Firstly, there are no such thing as “new” numbers, only recycled ones. Changing numbers is a bit like Russian roulette now. You never know who had the number before, or why it was given up.
Virgin Media have allocated ranges in each STD code area, & can only give you numbers in these ranges. If there is a shortage of numbers the “dwell” time (the time between the number being given up & you receiving it) can be as little as 3 months. You can also be unlucky & end up with a number that was previously used by a business.
So if you do go ahead, good luck. I would certainly look at a call blocking phone. You might need it.
